Firstly it's not possible for you to know if there are more than 9 business premier seats available by looking at the Air NZ website so I'm not sure how or why you think there is.
For 9 pax that's only a fare difference of $2477 per person which will include the booking change fee and whatever fee the travel agent is charging.
As changing 9 fares will very likely result in more expensive booking classes as you've booked out half the cabin (there are only 18 seats) and pricing varies by $3000 R/T ex NZ from the cheapest J to most expensive C fare it doesn't seem unreasonable at all ex Australia remembering it may also result in much higher TT fares as well for the business class component.
